Liquid Markets Summer Analyst

Capital Formation Group Summer Analyst (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Fortress Investment Group as an intern for less than a year

ProsLearn a lot and get lots of exposure to a variety of markets.
Small teams and lots of access to VPs and MDs.
Got to do "real" work as an intern on Wall St... most other summer analysts can't say the same.

ConsCulture is a very aggressive one. If you are not a cultural fit (i.e. very aggressive personality) will not fit into this particular group. However, this group is not representative of other groups at Fotress.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
